Classroom Ideas

Can be used as part of a lesson on division with remainders. At the beginning of the lesson, pupils could each be given three numbers. They could then be shown the clip and, upon its culmination, instructed to divide each of their three numbers by five, recording both the answer and the remainder. Those who finish within five minutes can move onto a more challenging task and those who are still working on their numbers can be shown the clip again, with the teacher pausing it to add further explanation at various points.
